Dear friends, 

It was 235 years ago today when our Founding Fathers planted the flag of freedom and defined the character of this country.

Pledging their lives, fortunes and sacred honor, Button Gwinnett, Lyman Hall and George Walton signed the Declaration of Independence on behalf of Georgia.

It was a courageous proclamation during a most challenging time.  Read entire message

Pawlenty's T-Time In Georgia Puts The Peach State In Play

T-Paw And T-Pride Blow Out Atlanta Fundraiser (?)

The man from Minnesota's march through Georgia yesterday wasn't exactly of the General Sherman variety, but he took Atlanta by storm nonetheless. 

Tim Pawlenty, a former two-term governor from the "Land of 1,000 Lakes," showed last night why he's a force to be reckoned with in the Republican presidential nominating sweepstakes. Despite his sagging early poll numbers, he's raising money-- and a lot of it. Read more.

Does anyone really believe that Pawlenty has a chance of taking GA with the recently appointed GA fundraiser?  Poor Gov. Pawlenty is a nice guy who does not know about current politics in GA. Frankly, $100,000 does not sound like a huge amount considering that they no doubt had unlimited access to former Governor Perdue and Governor Deal's fundraiser list of high rollers.

D-Day Summary

Although the term D-Day is used routinely as military lingo for the day an operation or event will take place, for many it is also synonymous with June 6, 1944, the day the Allied powers crossed the English Channel and landed on the beaches of Normandy, France, beginning the liberation of Western Europe from Nazi control during World War II. Within three months, the northern part of France would be freed and the invasion force would be preparing to enter Germany, where they would meet up with Soviet forces moving in from the east.

With Hitler's armies in control of most of mainland Europe, the Allies knew that a successful invasion of the continent was central to winning the war. Hitler knew this too, and was expecting an assault on northwestern Europe in the spring of 1944. He hoped to repel the Allies from the coast with a strong counterattack that would delay future invasion attempts, giving him time to throw the majority of his forces into defeating the Soviet Union in the east. Once that was accomplished, he believed an all-out victory would soon be his.

On the morning of June 5, 1944, U.S. General Dwight D. Eisenhower, the supreme commander of Allied forces in Europe gave the go-ahead for Operation Overlord, the largest amphibious military operation in history. On his orders, 6,000 landing craft, ships and other vessels carrying 176,000 troops began to leave England for the trip to France. That night, 822 aircraft filled with parachutists headed for drop zones in Normandy. An additional 13,000 aircraft were mobilized to provide air cover and support for the invasion.

By dawn on June 6, 18,000 parachutists were already on the ground; the land invasions began at 6:30 a.m. The British and Canadians overcame light opposition to capture Gold, Juno and Sword beaches; so did the Americans at Utah. The task was much tougher at Omaha beach, however, where 2,000 troops were lost and it was only through the tenacity and quick-wittedness of troops on the ground that the objective was achieved. By day's end, 155,000 Allied troops--Americans, British and Canadians--had successfully stormed Normandy’s beaches. 

For their part, the Germans suffered from confusion in the ranks and the absence of celebrated commander Field Marshal Erwin Rommel, who was away on leave. At first, Hitler, believing that the invasion was a feint designed to distract the Germans from a coming attack north of the Seine River, refused to release nearby divisions to join the counterattack and reinforcements had to be called from further afield, causing delays. He also hesitated in calling for armored divisions to help in the defense. In addition, the Germans were hampered by effective Allied air support, which took out many key bridges and forced the Germans to take long detours, as well as efficient Allied naval support, which helped protect advancing Allied troops. 

Though it did not go off exactly as planned, as later claimed by British Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery--for example, the Allies were able to land only fractions of the supplies and vehicles they had intended in France--D-Day was a decided success. By the end of June, the Allies had 850,000 men and 150,000 vehicles in Normandy and were poised to continue their march across Europe.

The heroism and bravery displayed by troops from the Allied countries on D-Day has served as inspiration for several films, most famously The Longest Day (1962) and Saving Private Ryan (1998). It was also depicted in the HBO mini-series Band of Brothers (2001).

Where does 14 equal four?

According to results from the nation's 2010 census gatherers, Georgia's population growth over the last decade relative to other states increased enough to award it with a new 14th U.S Congressional District (CD), effective with the 2012 election . . .

The new Congressional District (CD) will likely encompass all or parts of four counties: Bartow, Cherokee, Forsyth and Hall, with a combined population of about 700,000.

 There are three dates that every Presidential candidate has circled on the calendar.  Individually, none are 'make or break' days alone. Collectively, these three dates will separate the 'wannabes' from the 'real' candidates heading into the nomination marathon that begins in
 Iowa, moves to New Hampshire, and dashes toward South Carolina. June 13, 2011 is the date for the first GOP Presidential debate in which virtually all of the candidates will appear together on stage.  It will be a big crowd.   Read entire article
